Hi Mark,

Having spent a good deal of time browsing your site I must admit that I find myself a little confused, if not overwhelmed by choice...

I'm after a high quality, top end chef's knife that is well balanced, razor sharp and holds it's edge well.

From your experience and customer feedback would you be able to recommend a selection of options that I can compare?

Many thanks,
Ryan

Hi Ryan,

I need more info but I can make some guesses. Please correct if I'm wrong.

Right handed
Want stainless
Don't know how to sharpen
Under $600 (total guess)
Handle style not that important

If that's your basic criteria get this:

This knife is thin, hard, stainless and gorgeous. I really want to take one home and I'm not easily tempted after 10 years in the knife business.

Yes I can get one for you if you like. Just pm or email me and I'll set it up. The little petty that matches is awesome.

Hi Mark,

Thanks so much for the reply. The Konosuke sure looks a beautiful knife - quite captivating actually!

Can you tell me if there is anything else that compares to this within the same (or less) price bracket?

If I was to buy the 240 gyuto and the matching petty would you be able to do an offensively great deal for me?

Also, does Konosuke happen to make a matching Paring knife?

Warm regards,
Ryan

Hi Ryan,

There's tons of stuff on the site that might work for you. If you wanted to try a great carbon steel knife by the same company this one is a great deal and
comes with a free custom saya:
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kofuwh1gy240.html

They do make a matching 150mm petty and I have 1 left here:
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/ko15gipe.html

I'm sorry we don't offer any sales or discounts. We try to give people a good price not try and promote heavily with pricing games.

We don't carry the 210 and we have none on order.

We have some 270s coming that we ordered about 6 months ago. We also have some 210mm pettys coming too. These should arrive tomorrow or Monday.
